Hungarian collector Jozef Tari has been collecting miniature books since 1969. He created a collection of more than 4,500 publications in his home library. It is not limited to topics, authors or years of publication of these publications. The main condition is that the size of the books should not exceed 7.6 cm.
In Tara's collection you can find a variety of publications: from classic works of world literature to modern bestsellers, from scientific works to children's literature. Its collection currently includes over 4,500 items, including the world's 5 smallest newspapers and the world's smallest book measuring 19 x 26 mm. 
Of course, these miniature books are only used for collecting, not for reading. However, readers who want to use them for their intended purpose should arm themselves with a magnifying glass. These editions are made very small and detailed, but still have text and pictures. The exhibits of Josef Tara's collection are neatly arranged in a special cabinet with shelves that divide it into unique sections. 
For Jozef Tara, his collection is not only a hobby. It is a way to preserve history and culture in a unique way. He creates a unique world where each miniature book is a separate story. And although his library may seem small in size, it is large in meaning.
